Decisions taken or to be taken concerning regional aids in the UK (Brussels, 8 May 1974)

The first EEC enlargement (United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark) represented a crucial passage in the activation of the EEC’s regional policy. The UK had a comparatively long history of regional policy and a solid tradition of measures to cope with the problems of declining industrial areas. The British Government had expressed its interest in regional issues since the accession negotiations. The enlargement brought about some changes in the EEC’s internal policies with the activation of the Community Regional Policy and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), but also led to changes in the UK’s domestic regional policy. This document shows the restrictions that the country was forced to accept in its domestic regional policy in order to comply with the principle of free competition and to develop the new common regional policy.
